LEHIGH VALLEY, PA – With almost 300 active members, the Lehigh Valley Photography Club (LVPC) is already one of the largest photography clubs in America. Like most clubs, however, they are concerned about their future and are taking steps to insure the continuity of this very active group.

A discount is being offered in the category for high school, vocational, and college students who want to learn more about photography, whether to become more proficient as a hobbyist or to understand the nuts and bolts of being a professional. Students may join with their first year free, using a discount code.

The club offers many benefits to both pros and hobbyists, students and mature members. Speakers are from all areas of the photo community. Recent speakers included internationally acclaimed photographers Vincent Versace and Joe McNally, and Kristi Odom, a member of the International League of Conservation Photographers and a Nikon Ambassador. Besides the main speakers, there are sub groups, called Interest Groups, on topics such as Commercial Photography, Lightroom software, Capture One, Photoshop, Agricultural Photography, Underwater Photography, and Film Photography. Another major benefit is that membership unlocks access to content not visible to casual website visitors, i.e.: presentations, workshops, and meetings.

Members can also take advantage of sponsor discounts by such companies as Dan’s Camera City, Skylum software, Lensbaby, Think Tank Photo, and more.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, meetings have been via Zoom, enabling new members from further distances to join. As meetings open up again, the club will switch to a hybrid meeting style, so that distant members can stay connected.

As an incentive for students, the club is offering 2022 membership for free, by using a code when signing up. That’s a $30 savings. For questions about the club or to get the student code, contact Gary Heller at marmel735@yahoo.com.

The  LVPC is dedicated to cultivating the photographic interests of our membership in the Lehigh Valley of PA through speakers, contests, and photo shoots. Web: lvphotographyclub.org Follow us on Facebook
